Easy Frittata

Serves 2

Frittatas are perfect for using up veggie scraps. When testing recipes for this book, I used a lot of beets (beets and I were having a moment), so I always had leftover beet greens around the kitchen. I tried adding them to a frittata with some shallots, and it was a hit.

2 tablespoons olive oil
¼ cup diced shallots
1½ to 2 cups chopped beet greens
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 large eggs, beaten

Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
In an 8-inch oven-safe nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil over mediumhigh heat. Add the shallots and cook, stirring, for a couple of minutes, until softened, then stir in the beet greens and cook until wilted. Season with a generous pinch each of salt and pepper. Add the eggs and turn off the heat. Pop the skillet in the oven for about 10 minutes, or until the eggs are set.
Slice and serve.

Apricot, Cashew & Coconut Truffles

Makes 12 balls

These fruity, tropical bites are made for an afternoon treat; they're also great for packing in the kids' lunches. Treats all around!

½ cup dried apricots
½ cup raw cashews
½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
Zest of 1 lime
A pinch of flaky sea salt
1 tablespoon water

Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and process until the mixture is smooth and forms a ball around the processor blade (this may take a while).
Using wet hands, roll the mixture into 12 tablespoon-sized balls, setting them on a plate as you work.
Let set in the fridge until ready to eat.
